I'm considering my options now after reading more and more about honda and their bad transmissions. I'm not sure if I want to drop $2K - $3K on a manufacture of a failed honda designed transmission.

What do you suppose would be a reasonable price to ask for this vehicle?

'02 EX, white, great shape, no rust, body damage, or accidents. Doors still work like a charm. Only 125K miles. Extra tranny cooler, 2" receiver. recent Michelin Hydro something tires. Outside of transmission issues, it still drives like a smaller vehicle, handling is great considering the size and weight of it. Belt replaced before 100K.

Thanks.

It would be the market value of the van minus the cost to replace the transmission.

Let me know when you decide on a price and if the van is in Atlanta. I might be interested (with bad transmission).
Thanks

why not get a Gator or Jasper tranny and drive the van another 5-8 years? Cheaper than buying a new car. I say Gator or Jasper as others have reported that these seem to be better designed than the failed Honda trannys.

That would be my suggestion, I hate payments.

I might be interested as well if it is in Atlanta.

+1 on keeping it and fixing the tranny, you have a known quantity in your vehicle that has lots of good miles left in it, and the cost of a rebuilt tranny is a tiny fraction of what you will pay for a replacement vehicle.

Do some homework on tranny shops in your area, find a good one, or as said above, get a "brand-name" rebuild and have a local shop install it for you. Good time to do axle boots, engine mounts, and so on, if needed.
